How to mak e… Felt wing high tops
High top Converse Felt Contrasting thread Needle or sewing machine Paper Pen Scissors Six eyelets Eyelet setter kit The classic high top Converse gets a fresh look here thanks to a bit of felt and some nifty stitching. Most of us have a pair of these somewhere in our wardrobes, so beat broke January by giving them this thrifty makeover.
01 Using the template on page 100, draw out your chosen wing shapes on your piece of felt. 02 Cut out using sharp scissors.
03 Using a sewing machine or needle and thread, embroider a contrast outline of the shape onto your wings. Make sure you flip one wing over so you have a mirror image.
04 Punch three holes in each wing, 2.5cm ( 1") apart
05 Place an eyelet in the first hole and place on the anvil to set with the eyelet setter. Gently hammer into place.
06 Repeat this for the five remaining holes.
07 Lace your high tops until there are three holes left. Holding your wing in place, lace your shoes the rest of the way up. It's easy to attach and remove these. So, make them in load of different colours for indecisive mornings.
